Jamie Quatro is the author of I Want to Show You More. She is a visiting professor in the Sewanee School of Letters MFA program, and a contributing editor at Oxford American. A daring debut novel of obsession, lust, and salvation by the highly lauded author of the story collection, I Want to Show You More, Fire Sermon (Grove Press) is a tour de force that charts with bold intimacy and immersive sensuality the life of a married woman in the grip of a magnetic affair. Maggie is entirely devoted to her husband Thomas, their two beautiful children, and to God―until what begins as a platonic intellectual and spiritual exchange between writer Maggie and poet James transforms into an erotically-charged bond that challenges Maggie’s sense of loyalty and morality, drawing her deeper into the darkness of desire.
